Research Interests

My research focuses on developing and utilizing theoretical and computational methods to study advanced materials and molecular systems when they interact with electromagnetic fields. Particular interests involve electronic transport and many-body effects in solid materials, with potential applications to enhance quantum and optoelectronic technologies for storing, transporting, and processing information.
